Fonds consists of records related to Alan Austin’s activities as an educator and phycologist, including materials generated through major research projects and student projects, arranged into four series: 1. Seaweed Inventory Project; 2. Victoria Phenology Project; 3. Teaching and student material; and 4. Aquatic ecology projects. The Seaweed Inventory Project (SIP), in particular, is a valuable, detailed record and baseline survey of a substantial part of the coastline of BC, and the vegetation and biota (thus measurable on a global scale) supported at the time of the surveys done in 1972 and 1974. These data stand as a permanent record against which any coastal changes can be compared and measured. The sedentary, attached nature of coastal biota makes it particularly responsive to, and thus a sensitive indicator of changes in their environment. Forces of change include oil spills, toxic spills, runoff from land developments, marina construction, and natural catastrophic events. Series 1 has been arranged into four sub-series: SIP reports; SIP films and photographs; SIP correspondence and field notes; and SIP reference literature.
The fonds consists of 3 drafts of manuscripts, and 11 prints. The manuscripts include: "The Adventures of Felix," 1993; an unedited version of "Practice of Technology," 1995; and "Wise dwelling: transitions from modern to ecological paradigms: narrative connections to harmony, diversity and depth," 1999. The prints were designed by Jenus Friesen for Drengson's publication Doc Forest and Blue Mountain Ecostery, published in 1993.
Fonds consists of records related to two major projects conducted by Aqua-Tex Scientific Consulting. Fonds has been arranged into series according to project: 1. Photopoint monitoring project of urban creeks on southern Vancouver Island consists of a final report and photographic field data collected for Blenkinsop Creek, Colwood Creek, Latoria Creek, Leeds Creek and Swan Trestle (1998); 2. the comprehensive water quality monitoring plan for the Kootenai River Basin of British Columbia, Montana and Idaho project consists of a final report (2000).
The fonds consists of monographs, scientific articles, newspaper clippings, letters, slides, photographic prints, moving images, maps and other documents. The records are arranged in 3 series, reflecting Ellis's research and teaching interests: Environmental assessments, 1969-1997; Underwater Photography of salmon, 1957-1963; Arctic Research 1952-1967.

Pacific Coast Region consists of documents organized into 15 sub-series identified by environmentally distinct regions. The fonds also contains publications received by Dr. Waldichuk in the course of his activities.
